by on29 March 2013

Already shipping to Kickstarter backers

OUYA makers have announced that the retail version of the OUYA console will be hitting retail/e-tail stores on 4th of June with a price set at US $99.99.


In case you missed it, OUYA is an Android-based gaming console based on Nvidia's Tegra 3 platform and it promises quite a few games (104 to be precise) available from day one.

The developer edition consoles have been already shipped out and devs have been at it since December last year. Early backers will apparently get a retail metallic version while developers were getting the transparent plastic one. The OUYA team, as they like to call themselves, have noted that Kickstarter backers units will roll out over next few weeks and emails will be sent to backers as soon as it ships out of the factory.

All those that get their OUYA consoles will have to do a fast update, based on the connection speed and will need a credit/debit card to download games. They also noted that OUYA can be paired up with up to four controllers and since it supports Bluetooth, a list of other, pairable devices will be announced soon.

In case you are one of the early Kickstarter backers you might want to keep an eye on your email account and those that are waiting it to hit retail/e-tail in June should note that it will be initially available in the UK, Canada and the United States.
